Zoropsis Spinimana,Mediterranean Spiny Wolf Spider

​False wolf spider,Mediterranean spiny false wolf spider.
The British arachnophiles throwing their doors open to welcome this eight legged newcomer to British shores. Zoropsis spinimana has been around London since 2012 and has slowly, very slowly been making its way to places like Richmond and East Grinstead.. As usual and a bit late in the game, the UK Main Stream media are trying to demonise this non obtrusive and stunning spider, with headlines like “Med spider with 8 inch fangs and 15 kids coming to live in Britain on Benefits” You know the score, usual non story that sells papers and gets shared over social media untold times and which scares the ones who are have not a deeper knowledge about spiders or naturs. The reality is, Zoropsis spinimana is a large, docile and stunning spider, that is welcome into my house, unreservedly….

Please do not panic when you see it,but enjoy the beauty of this species,her usefulness in catching insects and welcome her…If you don’t want her in your home catch her gently with a glass and a postcard and let her out into the garden where she will catch insects (some of which will damage your garden plants) or were she becomes food for someone else.

It is distributed in the Mediterranean, but reaches into Russia, and was introduced to the United States, primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area.

So docile 🙂
